After the broadcast of the funeral ends, the late Queen’s coffin will be removed from the Royal Crypt in order to be transferred to the memorial chapel of George VI, her father. Her parents are also buried there, as well as the ashes of her sister Margaret. The coffin of Prince Philip will also be raised from the tomb. So, the monarch will be with her family.
Only Princes Andrew, Edward and Princess Anne will oversee this process. For the ceremony, for the first time in 20 years, a tombstone made of black Belgian marble was moved. The coffins of Elizabeth and Philip will be placed on top of each other, secured with a supporting metal frame.
By the way, this is not the first time such a practice has been used. Historian Aidan Dodson spoke about this to the media. “No burial in the royal tomb has been permanent for a century. It’s more like a funeral waiting room. So after the television cameras are turned off, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh will return to the surface to finally retire to eternal rest! Dodson assured.
